About Manor Farm
Manor Farm is located in the north of the borough within the parish of Bagworth and covers 7.39 hectares.
Much of the grassland areas of the site are managed under a Higher Level Stewardship agreement with Natural England. This agreement regulates the management of these areas in order to conserve and improve the diversity of the ground flora. The majority of the open grassland is grazed with cattle throughout the year. This helps to control the dominant grasses and reduces the nutrient levels in the soils, allowing the less dominant wildflower species to thrive.
Rights of way and access
The site is crossed by three footpaths and has four pedestrian access points (two access points are via wrought iron kissing gates whist the other two are via stiles).
It should be noted that Manor Farm gets its name from Manor Farm House, which was demolished in the 1980's due to subsidence and there is still a large amount of building debris in the area.
